State Aided Emigration Schemes From Ireland

From the crown estate of Ballykilcline

In the parish of Kilglass in the barony of Ballintubber, Co. Roscommon. It contained about 600 acres sub-divided into very minute holdings occupied by 'cottier labourers',and was almost completely over-tilled and worn out when the lease to the tenant, Lord Hartland fell in in April, 1843. A total of 366 persons from Ballykilcline had left Liverpool for N.Y., having sailed on seven different vessels.

Thus, with the exception of six families or twenty-two individuals who declined the offer to help them emigrate, and who were evicted from their holdings within a month of the departure of the last party, the entire tenantry of this estate had emigrated to America. On 17 May 1848 it was reported that the lands 'are perfectly untenanted'.

The estate was sold the following year to William George Downing Nesbitt for 5,500 pounds. The expenses for the emigration scheme amounted to 2,459 pounds 14s. 3d.
